For courses in Paralegal (Introduction), Legal Concepts for Paralegals, and Introduction to Law.

An engaging and practical introduction to the paralegal profession.

Written by an award-winning author team, The Paralegal Professional, 4e provides a solid foundation in substantive and procedural legal knowledge and analytical skills. Using chapter opening vignettes, ethical perspectives, advice from the field, and chapter exercises, it develops the real-world skills needed to be successful in a paralegal career. Substantive law chapters provide an overview of the most common individual legal areas of practice. The text brings paralegal practice alive and illuminates the roles and tasks paralegals assume in the legal working environment.


The new Fourth Edition of The Paralegal Professional is accompanied by MyLegalStudiesLab, including groundbreaking, interactive guided learning tools and media, and a robust course management and assessment program. MyLegalStudiesLab gives students the opportunity to test themselves on key concepts from their textbook, learn how to apply the concepts to real-life scenarios, and practice the skills they have learned through a Virtual Law Office Experience.
